ConstructionTank top is worked in the round from the top down. Shaping shoulders with German short rows, base top is worked first, flat until the underarms then joined in the round with increases at sides from bust to hem. Overlay top is worked second, identical to the base top until the underarms, then joined in the round with increases at 6 points around the body, creating a shorter, wider top. Back of overlay is lowered with short rows. Overlay and base tops are joined by picking up and knitting neck-band and armhole edgings through both tops.
